We Can’t All Be Beyoncé

10 May

My friend Krishna, who’s also a talented artist, alerted me to the fact that skewed body image isn’t limited to the West. Indian actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who was once deemed the most beautiful woman in the world, is now being called “aunty” – a not-so-subtle (and not-so-kind) jab at someone who’s put on a bit of frump.

Granted, Aishwarya gave birth to a whole human being just last November. But given Beyoncé’s hasty – if unrealistic – post-baby weight loss, expectations for celebrities of this calibre have just increased.

So start starvin’, Aishwarya! That baby doesn’t need you nearly as much as the film industry does.

    I support Aishwarya Rai for choosing to focus on her baby than her body. Her priorties are right! But correction, she gave birth to her baby in November.

    The Scrawn: Thanks for the correction. We’ve updated the post.
